Speaker: eteam/Hajoe Moderegger、Franziska Lamprecht

eteam is a two people collaboration who uses video, performance and writing to articulate encounters at the edges of diverging cultural, technical and aesthetical universes since more than 20 years. Tripping over earthly planes they trigger transactions between its occupants and establish wireless connections. Their narratives have screened internationally in video- and film festivals, they lectured in universities, presented in art galleries and museums and performed in the desert, on fields, in caves and on mountaintops, in ships, black box theaters and horse-drawn wagons. 

 

They could not have done this without the generous support of Creative Capital and The John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation, Art in General, NYSCA, NYFA, Rhizome, CLUI, Taipei Artist Village, Eyebeam, Smack Mellon, Yaddo and the MacDowell Colony, the City College of New York, the Hong Kong Baptist University and the Fulbright Program, among many others. Their novel “Grabeland” was published with Nightboat Books in February 2020.

 

 

Video Screening and Talk

The Backup Tapes from Moon and Mars

 

In 2012 eteam visits the towns of Mars and Moon Township in Pennsylvania. Their approach is documentary, positioning themselves as cultural anthropologists who view the towns as if they were simulated environments on Earth, a training ground for eventual living on the planet Mars and Earth's satellite, the Moon.

 

The 33 minutes long film explores the uncanny and experience of observing foreign landscapes that are equally mundane and loaded with trace evidence from the past until the alienating surroundings turn warm and human. Eteam discovers Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin cutting hair in a barber shop in Mars, supplying little doses of human decencies to the Martians. “To step on the Moon for the very first time can only be done once, but a hair cut is demand every other month.”
